Is there really a job being advertised? Or is this what recruitment companies use to gather CVs?

Should I apply in "Expression of Interest" job ads?

What does “expression of interest” mean in job ads? ... Is there really a job being advertised?

In this case, it means that they don't have reqs for jobs at the moment, but anticipate having some coming open soon.

The key is here: "We have a number of upcoming requirements for Mid - Senior Web Developer in the October – November periods."

Should I apply in "Expression of Interest" job ads?

If you are interested, you can express your interest. If you aren't interested, you shouldn't.

  • Given the fact that now is already October, I find it a bit odd that they don't know whether they actually have requirements for the "October-November periods" (which is at most one month away). – Brandin Oct 6 '15 at 7:55

    @Brandin, sometimes this is to prove they can get qualified employees if they win a contract. – HLGEM Oct 6 '15 at 14:53

For more senior posts where the requirements are complex, it means "contact us if you might be interested, and we'll send you the information pack".
